'Horror Party'

I came across this peice from a 1979 copy of the girl's annual 'Blue Jeans' which is part of a feature on what to do for a themed party.I included this really because it was just nice to see 'Fangs' & 'Bones mentioned from the Smiths Horror bags range. It would be interesting to know if anyone tried this horror party out at the time.

Its quite amazing how many different sort of novelty erasers you could buy back in the 70's and 80's, remember the fruity smelling ones? Even though these erasers never really worked very well at rubbing out pencil,they were just cool to have. The ones you see pictured here I had almost forgotten about untill I saw these on ebay. Always wondered what the head is supposed to be, I think there were a few different sorts of heads available,one being a Dracula head which is one that I have had for quite some time. I like the hand and foot here too. The artwork on the pack reminds me a little of the Helix Horror stationary range.
